Families work together to learn about camping cook-stove options.
An event at Stephen F. Austin State University's Pineywoods Native Plant Center on Jan. 9 will offer visitors an opportunity to cook a delicious camp-stove breakfast, learn about fire safety, and contribute to a bottomland hardwood wetlands restoration project by planting trees along the trails near the center. John Boyette of the Texas Forest Service will demonstrate a variety of camping cook-stove options and discuss fire safety. Families and staff will work together to create a hearty outdoor breakfast before heading out to plant trees in the bottomlands of the Native Plant Center.
